Tag Tuesday - Wings

I am SO happy get back to making tags after a brief  hiatus. The late summer heat and unusually high humidity was just a bit much for me. But with the cooler weather, I revive! Here is my attempt to carry out the theme of "wings." I had no intention of making it a Christmas tag, but creative pursuits often take you in an unplanned direction, which is the fun and surprise and sometimes frustrating part of it!

This involved a lot of "fussy cutting," but I enjoy that.  I thought she would look cute hanging from a package or even from the Christmas tree. The doll stamp is from Character Constructions. The wings are from Mad Rat Rubber--perfect wings for this size of doll!  The sentiment is a retired stamp from Stampin' Up.

I plan to make quite a few more of these in deeper colors for Christmas ornaments and gift decorations, but for now I need to work on the next theme and get some Halloween items made for Oxford Impressions new Halloween stamps: Danse Macabre

I'm linking up with these parties:

There is something unexpected about these that I just love. Maybe it's the angels posture, which seems to have a touch of teenage sullenness; the Steampunk Angel being made to turn up at Grand Aunt Agnes' for tea, and she just knows the biscuits will be stale and everyone will smell vaguely of moth balls and Ben-Gay.

I love how you managed to make the angel sexy and the colours are amazing!
